IRON MOUNTAIN - The Third Annual Daily News Spring Craft Show will be held at Birchwood Mall on Saturday, March 29.
Vendors, crafters and home business owners are encouraged to participate in the show.
Newspapers In Education Coordinator Diane Adams said the Spring Craft Show is different than The Daily News Big Holiday Craft Show (held in November) in that this is a way for Newspapers In Education to have an event aimed at involving the community and welcoming in the spring season.
Ron Maki of Kingsford checks out the hat selection at the Conery Sports of Kingsford booth at the 2013 Daily News Spring Craft Show at Birchwood Mall in Kingsford. This year’s show will be held on Saturday, March 29.
"This is a great opportunity for crafters, vendors, and home business owners to show off their products and ring in the (hopefully) warm weather," she said.
The show will take place from 9 am. to 4 p.m. March 29 throughout the mall, located at 610 S. Carpenter Ave. in Kingsford.
The event is being promoted heavily across the Upper Peninsula and northern Wisconsin.
"We anticipate that thousands will be in attendance," Adams said.
Admission is free.
"There are still some spaces left, but they are filling up quickly, so everyone is definitely encouraged to book a booth now. Anyone and everyone is welcome, whether they plan on showing lawn and garden items, boats, RV's, ATV's, home appliances, food items, crafts, etc.," said Adams.
Questions pertaining to the event or regarding booth availability can be directed to Adams at 774-2772, ext. 47.
The spring craft show raises funds for Newspapers In Education, a non-profit organization funded solely through fund-raising events and grants paid for by The Daily News, local business sponsors, and generous subscribers.
Newspapers In Education provides area schools with the newspapers and other teaching resources in order to assist teachers and educators.
